The poor standard of discourse in the blogoshere…

One speaker from the floor talked about his huge disappointment with the quality of discourse online, particularly the focus on constituency matters and/or plain gossip. Where is the discussion of ideas that shape our political relationships? Damien responded that the blog is a way of interacting directly with local citizens.

    Or sometimes, the absence of discourse. Many of your blog posts got no responses, something like votes in a Eurovision song contest. Perhaps permanent threads like forums are better in many ways for discussion. Or at least a system where blogs of a feather are lumped together. In this case one thread on blogging as opposed ot occasional posts that may or may not get wings to them.
